Story

Good. I loved Baccano! and I loved this anime too. The storyline at the start is quite like Baccano!, an eclectic mix of storylines with many different protaganists. I loved how these storylines interwove and built up the complex relationships betwen the characters. The change in tack in the middle ruins it slightly

 

Animation

Brilliant attention to detail. The setting and backgrounds are always brilliantly animated. This makes up for characters looking quite same-y. However the show is about some normal people and how they react to circumstances so characters that don't really stand out should be allowed. 

 

Sound

Excellent soundtrack paired with a very strong vocal performance. The soundtrack is as eclectic as the mix of characters. Because of this different themes get used repetitively when certain characters are involved. 

 

Characters

Good, suffers a little from Baccano! Syndrome – too many characters not really enough development time. You want to find out more about each character and that never really happens


Overall

Brilliant, excellent entertainment. It should have been longer or more streamlined

8/10 story
9/10 animation
8.5/10 sound
8/10 characters
8.4/10 overall
